A new study, co-authored by researchers at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Forestry, offers a ‘scorecard’ for climate adaptation projects – a set of 16 criteria that can be used to evaluate climate adaptation projects and inform their design.

Researchers and policy-makers often assume that public preferences for climate change adaptation are positive and stable compared to those of mitigation. However, public judgments about adaptation in natural resource sectors (like forestry) require that people make difficult, value-laden and uncertain trade-offs across complex social-ecological systems.Read More Surprisingly Malleable Public Preferences for Climate Adaptation in Forests
This is the first evidence of the tremendous genetic variation that can accumulate in some of our tallest trees.Read More UBC Scientists Find High Mutation Rates Generating Genetic Diversity Within Huge, Old-growth Trees
Tackling climate change over wine and cheese with your neighbours sounds too good to be true. But Dr. Stephen Sheppard, a professor emeritus with Forest Resources Management, says local climate change action should be fun.Read More Faculty of Forestry Among UBC Researchers Helping Prepare For Climate Change
